This is a simple Jekyll theme that uses tailwindCSS’s-based ui-kit of simplysuperb. My blog uses it currently, so you can see it live at: Additionally, here’s a screenshot*:

* Article titles were copied from‘s homepage at the time of designing of this template.


Add this line to your Jekyll site’s Gemfile:

gem "jekyll-theme-superb"

And add this line to your Jekyll site’s _config.yml:

theme: jekyll-theme-superb

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install jekyll-theme-superb


Theme has a post layout used for displaying a single post, an index layout used for displaying all posts and a page layout that differs slightly from the post layout.


Additional to other config options already present in jekyll itself, this theme also has:

  • subtitle: Shown next to the name of the blog (top left corner, visible desktop only)


Bug reports and pull requests are welcome on GitHub at This project is intended to be a safe, welcoming space for collaboration, and contributors are expected to adhere to the Contributor Covenant code of conduct.


To set up your environment to develop this theme, run bundle install and npm install.

To run postcss for the tailwind part:

npm run css:dev

To run jekyll and its processor:

npm run jekyll:dev

Note: You might checkout concurrently, if you want to run both commands… wait for it… concurrently.


First, make sure the theme runs smoothly (or at all) locally.

Then create the 💎

gem build jekyll-theme-superb.gemspec 

Lastly, publish it to the ☁️

gem push jekyll-theme-superb-*.gem
